Seven performance metrics for Java applications

I came across this in this blog post and am adding it here as a checklist. It’s a worthwhile¬†list to have so you can understand how your Java app behaves in production.

  1. Response times and throughput
  2. Load Average
  3. Error Rates (and how to solve them)
  4. GC rate and pause duration
  5. Business Metrics
  6. Uptime and service health
  7. Log size
